MARK COLE

CEO

Mark Cole has more than 25 years of leadership and team development experience, which uniquely qualifies him to be the champion of the John C. Maxwell brand. With a passion for leadership development and organizational growth, he is committed to adding value to individual leaders and leadership teams. Mark has experience in both the non-profit and for profit sectors, and he has led companies through economic challenges, growth barriers, and disconnected team dynamics. These skills have led to Mark's integral role with the John C. Maxwell brand and his responsibility for stewarding John's assets in a variety of capacities.

Mark serves as the CEO of all five Maxwell Organizations: The John Maxwell Company, EQUIP, The John Maxwell Team, The John Maxwell Leadership Foundation, and Maxwell Motivation. Prior to his current roles, Mark held leadership positions in two previous Maxwell entities, INJOY/Maximum Impact and INJOY Stewardship Services. In 2008, Mark launched his own consulting firm, the IRON League, which provides leadership advice to various high-level organizations. Mark and his incredible wife, Stephanie, have two daughters, Tori and Maci, and a handsome grandson, Ryder. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia. When Mark is not leading, he spends his time golfing and snow skiing.
